The Memorial Medical Center – Lufkin Volunteer Auxiliary recently honored members for dedicating over 15,000 hours of volunteer time to the hospital. At the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon, individuals were recognized for their hours of service.
The Memorial Volunteer Auxiliary is a vital part of the organization. The volunteers contribute their time by greeting guests, answering phones, working as waiting room attendants and more. They raise funds through the hospital gift shop, jewelry, book and scrub sales. This group also provides scholarships through popcorn sales for students who pursue healthcare careers.
